Incubus with special guests Jimmy Eat World and Atlas Genius made a stop on their extensive 2017 tour at the Lakeview Amphitheater in Syracuse, NY on July 15.
Southern Australian rock band Atlas Genius took the stage first. The band is made up of three brothers, Keith, Michael and Steven Jeffery. They have been playing since 2009 and are definitely making their mark in the U.S. on this tour. They got the crowd amped up before leaving the stage.
Next up was the one and only Jimmy Eat World. Their solid stage presence and variety of hits that people of all ages knew, made for a good time. They are for lack of a better term…fun. They played everyone’s favorites including, “The Middle,” “Sweetness,” “Hear You Me” and many more.
Headliner, Incubus took the stage and the fans were ready to rock. As soon as the opening notes of “Love in a Time of Surveillance” could be heard, everyone was on their feet jamming out. Incubus is currently on tour supporting their new album Incubus 8. Incubus also kept their fans enthralled by playing a mix of hits and worked in a few tunes off the new album. Highlights included: “Drive,” “Pardon Me” and “Nice to know you.” The band had bit of a surprise for everyone when they played their hit song “Wish you Were Here” and mixed in a portion of Pink Floyd’s world renowned song also named “Wish You Were Here.” They ended their set with “No Fun” before leaving the stage briefly and returning for a one song encore of “Aqueous Transmission.” What an incredible evening of music!
